Holiday Hors d'Oeuvres

12/6/14 - I am wishing I had the motivation to make this wreath for a Christmas Open House I am attending on Sunday.  The chicken salad sounds absolutely wonderful.  Here is the recipe for Holiday Tea Sandwich Wreath :
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cored diced apples
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup seedless grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2/3 cup diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Pumpernickel bread
  • Square or circular cookie cutter
  • Finely chopped chives
Blend all ingredients well in a large bowl.
Use the cookie cutter to cut 2 identical pieces from the bread.
Spoon a bit of the salad atop one piece of bread, and top  with the second piece.
Dip the sandwich in chopped chives.
When you have completed about 10 sandwiches, arrange them sideways in a circle on a platter to resemble a wreath.

The Grinch Kabobs at left look like something I could whip up in a short time..............decisions, decisions.

Original recipe makes 24 servings
